Style at any age

Friday afternoon and the blue skies have given way to wintery showers here. Time to pick the little one up from school shortly and get ready for the weekend. Hope you have something lovely planned.

Today a little style inspiration from a more unusual source. Scouring Pinterest for inspiration this week I came across an unfamiliar name for me in style. Linda Rodin is a former model and fashion editor and with that pedigree there's no great surprise she is so stylish. But what I really love about her style is that it seems totally ageless. There is a relaxed, effortless elegance that she manages to pull off without looking untidy or underdressed. Kind of gives me the confidence to dress a little bit bolder perhaps. And how good does that red lip look with her grey hair! 

She reminds me of a good friend of mine I met for coffee this week. I won't reveal her age [very uncouth!], but she is determined to keep her hair longer and not bow to certain conventions we have set in older age. I say, throw that rule book out of the window and dress how you feel, not according to the number on your driving licence. Naturally it helps if you take good care of the inside too. That youthfulness and vitality doesn't come from a face cream or a cashmere sweater, but how you're feeling on the inside.

Great inspiration for a Friday don't you think? See you next week and have a great weekend.
